Containing Multitudes Since 2004
They were also an item, as later were Gloria Grahame and Nick Ray Jnr.
I'm reading Suicide Blonde about Grahame right now. Man, you can hardly even tell that's her in the photo, what with her ever-changing face and all.Interestingly, the book claimed Nick Ray was more okay with her relationship with his son (her former stepson) than her ex Cy Howard. You'd think the dad of the stepson would be more upset, but apparently not.
Gloria Grahame died in Liverpool. An ex girlfriend of mine worked with her at the Dukes Theatre in Lancaster. She always spoke very fondly of her. Still the Nick Ray x2 thing always bothers me!
I certainly never would have picked Grahame out of that picture, and I just watched Macao a couple of days ago. Is this a late '50s shot?Also just discovered that Ray's True of Jesse James is out on DVD. Why does nobody tell me these things? (Or about that Universal Franchise DVD thing with two Boettichers I haven't seen...)
swac, I'm torn on whether that' Grahame or not. The eyes look right but the rest, not so much.Then I found this photo:http://www.nndb.com/people/088/000063896/and there's a clear resemblance. However the nose just doesn't look right:http://www.visiontv.ca/Media/photogallery/photos/Movies/Glen%20Ford%20and%20Gloria%20Grahame%20in%20Human%20Desire%20-%201954.jpg(Hope those links work).
Here's the tinyurl of that second link I posted:http://tinyurl.com/2s9eaf
Strangely I didn't have any trouble identifying Grahame in this photo; it was Ray I was unsure of. But it is indeed both, taken on the set of In a Lonely Place
